Another French wine which was introduced to me by my brother in law, who got me hooked on Lynch Bages. He grew up in Bordeaux, so he should know. I tried this with him in Asia at a wine tasting and it was my favorite of the night. And, because of its price, is a bottle I might actually buy myself on a regular basis.

This wine requires several hours of decanting but it is so worth the wait. I thought the first sip after 2 hours was solid. 2 hours later it was absolutely phenomenal. Wonderfully smooth with a long, beautiful finish. There are hints of fruit and smokey vanilla both in the smell and taste. A truly impressive wine.

Wow. This shows so much ripe fruit and berry character with just the right hint of lead pencil and spice. Full-bodied and very chewy. Big and powerful. Beautiful wine. Superb. Best after 2012.

A balanced, early-drinking red. Beautiful blackberry and mineral aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Best after 1999.

A spectacular effort, this is a profound Pichon Baron and clearly my favorite vintage of this wine since the 1989 and 1990. An inky purple color offers up notes of barbecue spices intermixed with new saddle leather, creme de cassis, melted licorice, creosote, and a hint of vanilla. The wine is full-bodied, tremendously concentrated, with sweet tannin and a seamless finish that goes on for close to one minute. This wine has great purity, tremendous texture, and fabulous upside potential. This is a prodigious 2000! Anticipated maturity: 2008–2028.

Slightly earthy, featuring tobacco, cigar box and dark fruits. Full-bodied, offering supervelvety tannins and a long, rich finish. Plenty of subtle things are going on here in the glass, with lots of wonderful fruit underneath. Canrsquo;t wait on this. Showing beautifully now. Better than ever. rsquo;89/rsquo;99 Bordeaux blind retrospective.

Fantastic aromas of currants, berries and hints of minerals. Cool and sleek. Full-bodied, with a lovely underbelly of ripe fruit and medium, silky tannins. Best Pichon Baron I have tasted since 1990... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Pichon-Longueville Baron 750ml

<p>This Bordeaux was blended form the village of Pauillac. The Les Tourelles is a Merlot based blend with cabernet sauvignon and cab franc. On the nose you get leather and subtle notes of sawdust mixed with dark fruit. The palate is soft and deep with a calm power to it, which is apparent on the finish with the gripping tannins. The finish stays with you for some time but falls away gracefully. Highly recommended with fish meals and fruit. Cheers!&nbsp;</p>
